Good stuff! ... Death Cab is really getting some smoke and some momentum. I remember playing them on my college radio station in the late 90's when no one knew who they were and they were on an indie label .. I guess all the great bands have to hit it bit sometime!

The real question is when is somebody gonna ask Mariah Carey to share her awesome live concerts on archive.org?

Hi Matt!

I heard she was excited about the archive project but was only going to allow downloads of Audience recordings and streaming of SBDs. freaking ridiculous. After all her fans have given her over the years and now she turns into a capitalist fat cat.

I dunno man, I find somewhere in the phrase:

"archive bands nonimated for grammys"

an oxymoron waiting to happen......

I'm still trying to figure this statement out - most the bands here are a lot more talented and have a lot better taste than mainstream music. If anyone deserves the awards, these bands do. To each his own though.

*sigh* Explaining jokes really does seem a bit too Dennis Miller (at least the old Dennis Miller) to me, but here goes:

To me the archive represents the complete opposite of mainstream (ie: nominated for grammys) music. Music for music sake, free tradeability out from under the corporate wing. I mean JEEZ have you heard some of the utter crap that wins Grammy awards? Thus the oxymoron. It would be the same knod of thing as, say, Titanic being nominated for an independent film award. Or perhaps Rosie O'Donnell being nominated for Miss America.....

there is nothing wrong with being popular and good...
if they win an award then common sense tells you that is a positive...

the point i was making is that some bands that are popular are also on archive... nice to see some bands can sell records and still let fans download live recordings for free...

if you want to be anti-establishment thats up to you... but why be anti something that is positive for bands on the archive and also positive for archive?

No there is nothing wrong with being "popular and good", though becoming "popular" has ruined many a talented band.

However my joke was a knock on the Grammys, an award that has been met with giggling among folks that listen to music besides the mainstream garbage that usually wins the award. There was no disrespect meant towards the archive.

Nobody's putting down the marvy bands that we get here, nor that a slim few have become "popular". If you're unable to see how unrelated the phony corportae-driven grammys and the grassroots, free-trade, music sharing community are, that's not my fault....

It was a joke, son, a joke....

Gotcha, tone is tough to read on the forum! ;) I will agree that the majority of Grammy winners are absolute garbage. Nominations seem stipulated by album sales...

I'm pretty sure Bela Flecks won a Grammy before and he's on the archive...

What's wrong with Bela Fleck and the Flecktones? They even won for a *live* album. :)
